Fence Post Systems

Franklin Industries Co.’s Famous Gold Crown and Green/Light Grey Fence Posts are made from High-Strength Rail Steel and coated with high quality enamel paints to last years longer than other posts in the field. Even unfinished posts, used in silt fences, orchards, and vineyards, benefit from rail steel’s inherent weathering resistance. For posts that will last for decades, hot dip galvanizing is also available.
